Good food good service.

Good food, i had the philly cheese steak. You really need to like onions, since its got a lot on lt. The waitress was friendly and helpful so we had good service. Price was ok and it wasn't to crowded even at lunch time.

Biscuits and gravy comes with every order. I lost all will power eating the biscuits! Total delish! We each ordered eggs my husband got hash browns and I got pancakes with mine. The hash browns are chunky and seasoned perfectly. The pancakes were the best pancakes I have every had. We arrived about 9 am on Easter Sunday and by... More

This was one of the best breakfast meals I've ever eaten on the road (and there have been MANY!). The biscuits were the fluffiest, best tasting I have ever had (and I am from the south-that says a lot) and the gravy was peppered to perfection! The wait staff was great (Thanks Tiffany for such super service)! If you are... More

The food was good. The waitresses were very nice. However, the hostess was not a nice person. Several other guests were commenting on how rude she was. I'm not sure if I would go back, even though the food was good, to be treated like that. It was a cozy setting. I will say the waitresses made up for the... More

The Hotel clerk recommended this place (and they have a restaurant). Solid breakfast, big fluffy pancakes, three egg omelettes stuffed. Definitely the business breakfast location. Much cheaper than the Hotel and everything was freshly made.

Great breakfast in a very busy restaurant. Service was wonderful and they had yummy biscuits! Have to get there early though or you will be waiting outside for a table!

We've been to the Blue Plate downtown location, and weren't impressed, but decided to give this location a chance. It was a twenty minute wait, but they herded is in there pretty quickly. I ordered an omelet with bacon, cheese, green peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms. The add-ons were 75 cents a pop, and for two slices of mushrooms, it wasn't... More

Had a great experience eating here. Everything was exceptional and those biscuits were heavenly. Will be back and bringing friends...so good. Service was attentive and such happy smiles on all the faces. Pancakes were wonderful, too! You have to try this darling place, soon.

A country-esque cafe Overlooking Court Square and just off Main St this is a convenient location for lovers of the BIG breakfast. I didn't find the front desk overly welcoming but the young waitress was lovely so made up for the dissappointing first impressions. The extensive breakfast menu comes in a newspaper mock-up. Between the 3 of us we had... More
